What's That Smell?
a series of amusing celebrity interviews for a delightful new magazine of the same name
Find a celebrity that u wish to have a discussion with - the least liked the better. Before the interview prepare the following:
Find a microphone that you can screw the top off of. Once removed, insert a small piece of dog or similar animal shit. Return the tip of the microphone in place.
the subject during the pre-arranged interview, and ask your first question. The microphone should be then placed in front of the celebrity's nose/mouth area.
Their answer will be "What's that smell?". Record this, finish the interview immediately and move to the next celebrity.
Collate the celebrity responses in a magazine with photographs of their upturned grimaces as you unwittingly stick dog shit in their face.

||it would be interesting from the perspective that no matter who u interviewed, the first response would invariably be 'what's that smell?'. the interview would be cut there, so the only thing they have to say is a common assertation on the cult of celebrity, and the accompanying shit smell of the media
